This 1980 Ford Econoline Van with an Okanagan high top conversion was our home for 3 summers and 2 winters in BC. We have spent many hours renovating the inside and installing new parts to make it mechanically sound. It has new brakes and tires all around. There is a new stereo deck and speakers which can play via aux cord or CD's. The van is equipped with a 2 burner stove and furnace which runs off a 20 lb propane tank located on the passenger side of the van. The van has a brand new 12V dometic fridge which runs off the battery. The battery is charged while driving but also by a 100 W solar panel on the roof. The health of the battery can easily be monitored inside the van by a LCD screen. There is an inverter with USB and 120V plugs for charging devices. There is also a lighter plug in the corner by the bed to plug in the LED lights above the bed and charge devices. There is a fresh water and grey water tank on board. The fresh is ~100L and the grey is a 20 L tank that must be removed and dumped as necessary. If you have any questions let us know. Mitch & Marisa

Recommendations

I recommend checking out and staying at some of the many Yukon Government Campgrounds around the territory.

Other things to note

There is limited cell service in the Yukon. Renters should look into bringing a GPS communication device (InReach, Spot, etc) to communicate with loved ones or with us if there is any questions about the van while travelling.

The renter is required to have insurance on another vehicle within Canada and provide this proof that this insurance that will work for the rental of our van. The outdoorsy insurance does not apply to the Yukon, which is why this is required.

The van is 2wd with some great tires so it is ok to drive down rougher gravel roads to access campgrounds, but avoid doing any off-roading with this van. You can go down the Dempster to access the Tombstone park / Campground, but you cannot travel down the Dempster highway any further with this van.

A detailed manual will be provided with instructions about the van and how to use the amenities it has.

The van and jerry can will be given full of gas and is expected to be returned back the same. Please return it fairly tidy when you're trip is over for easy cleaning and for the next renter.

No smoking and no pets. We will only rent to those over the age of 25. Travel is to be kept within the Yukon Territory.

We had such a great time with Ol' Betsy! Marissa and Mitch made sure we had evrything we needed and were easy to contact if anything happened. Would rent Ol' Betsy again in a heart beat :)

I enjoyed meeting Mitch and Marisa and travelling in "o'l Betsy" I particularly liked the solar powered recharging for my cell phone. I did not cook in the van so have no comment on that part of the facility. It was nice to have the fridge. Everything worked well and the 1980 van was in good shape.

Marisa’s answer

Thanks for the review Wayne and we are so happy you enjoyed taking Ol' Betsy around to explore the Yukon! We would love to host you again, and thanks for the surprise beers in the fridge! All the best!
